Educate your staff on the key requirements of the PCI DSS

The PCI DSS is administered by the PCI Security Standards Council (PCI SSC) to decrease payment card fraud across the Internet and increase the security of confidential payment card information.

Every organisation that stores, transmits or processes cardholder data must comply with the PCI DSS. Compliance is regulated and enforced by payment card brands (Visa, Mastercard, American Express, JCB and Discover) directly or through their partner relationships with ‘acquirer’ banks. 

The PCI DSS requires organisations to “implement a formal security awareness program to make all personnel aware of the importance of cardholder data security” (Requirement 12.6).  



E-learning is a quick, affordable and effective means of delivering training to multiple learners.

  • Provides systematic, consistent and repeatable training. 
  • No travelling or other course attendance costs, as learners study from their desk and in their spare time. 
  • Web-delivered, so there are no additional technology or integration costs or challenges. 
  • Can be deployed for existing employees and as part of an induction process for new starters. 
  • Cost-effective – multi-user licences and multi-year contracts are available upon request. 



This course is designed to increase employees’ awareness of the PCI DSS requirements and provide clear and simple explanations of what companies and their employees must do to meet those requirements.
